Speed Reading Tracks
Tom Brown Jr.

There are a lot of people that are having a hard time increasing their speed as they read tracks. Even with a lot of dirt time, there seems to be only slight gains in speed. Certainly this type of speed reading, where a person can quickly walk or run over the same trails he used to crawl over, takes a lot of dirt time to master, but there are easier ways.

The simple rule is this: if you want to follow deer tracks quickly, start reading mouse tracks. In other words, to increase your speed don't stick with larger tracks, but learn to read the smaller tracks. Then, when you go back to the larger tracks, you will be able to see and read them easily. I usually do this no matter what I am learning. No matter what the skill, I always shoot to master the harder one first.
